On the pretext of needing to provide comfort and security [Chandra] to others, the Vṛścika Chandra may use emotional strategies of non-disclosure, secrecy, or camouflage.

There are three nakshatra types of hidden operations within Vṛścika.

  1. Viśākha-Chandra-pada-4 may use this habit of concealment to further its goal of expanding wisdom [Guru] via the impact of emotional shock.

  2. Anuradha-Chandra may use this cover-up habit to further its goal of limiting [Shani] the impact of dangerous threats via emotional damage control.

  3. Jyeṣṭha -Chandra may use this habit of strategic screening to further its goal of delivering emotionally cutting, sharply worded messages. Since mentalized Professor Budha activates the obscured 8th-from-Chandra, Jyeṣṭha tends to produce the most clever disguises.

Within the 30 degree range occupied by - Chandra-Vṛścika

Shani-ruled [Chandra in Anuradha - Maitra] comforted by resistance to danger * protects against preventable damage * soothed by emergency regulations

pada 1-2-3-4 signifies an emotional impetus toward rigorously structured bureaucratic action that steadily climbs the hierarchy

Shani-ruled Anu-radha (after the storm) institutionalizes, structures the social order, imposes rules. Kuja-ruled Vṛścika rashi delivers self-propelled championship, athletic conquest, and blood-running military drive. Thus in Anuradha a contradiction and a collision which implies the orderly regulation of combustible force:

  • the immovable object meets the irresistible force

Regulator of Post-war Alliances - Forger of Survival Relationships

  • /Alliance-builder/ often in context of survival [Shani] or urgently pressured [Shani]

  • collaborative and contractual partnership

  • " Post-war alliances ","forging ahead" despite a climate of hostility, often in desperation

  • alliances forged under duress

Shani-ruled Nakshatra of Chandra

Professor Chandra's classroom is characterized by emotional stability and security via socially approved institutional rules and regulations [Shani]

Mom is a stable, enduring personality who may be skilled in crisis management and damage prevention

Emotionally, Anuradha creates a difficult and demanding situation.

Shani paired with Mangala = a tough deal

  • Emotionally, Anuradha creates a difficult and demanding situation.

  • through force of will and sharp determination , Mitra is able to combine the best of Shani's impetus to impose order upon human society with the best of Kuja's aggressive, invasive enthusiasm to win.

  • Anuradha-Chandra are capable of bringing together warring parties into a stable alliance.

The Sade-Sati [nīcha] Chandra-Anuradha (Moon in Scorpio) is often very challenging for young people. Sade-Sati feels easier after Shani Matures at age 36.

Persistent and capable, determined workers.

  • Be Here Now 1931-2019 Baba Ram Dass [secretive-explosive Maitra-4] [vargottamsha] [nīcha-Mangala-2 parivartamsha Chandra-6-nīcha] RD survived emotional, physical, and financial catastrophe in pursuit of a lasting contribution to tantric philosophy.

Often one's first experience with the task occurs in childhood, where the child assumes the work of bringing one's warring parents into some level of tentative working agreement.

The position of middleman between threatening, weaponized parties can be dangerous.

Anu-radha Chandra may seek solace in self-annihilating poisons.

One has inherited a strife-torn world which can bettered, slowly and persistently, through crafting of stabilizing and mutually profitable agreements.

One is making alliances between those who have been tortured by the violence of the splitting during the storm (Bishaja).

Agreements are delicate and uncertain, and may have to be ensured by threat of force.

Anuradha signifies good luck for those who survive the lightning-shocks-splits of Radha * Viśākha * Bishaja.

Emergency Physicians

Many physicians of all specialties tend to have Anuradha placements. Chandra-Anuradha is the leading pattern. Anuradha particularly indicates professional healers who work in emergency-response environments, such as top-level trauma centers or on the military battlefield. Anuradha is a damage mitigator and safety officer. Anuradha thrives in large institutions, and they do best when there is some element of danger in their work environment. Anuradha needs to start with a state of threat or violent chaos. Then Maitra works assiduously to bring order into life-threating situations .

Anuradha-Chandra childhood

  • emotionally difficult, often due to harsh urgency of forced agreements.

  • Survivors are strengthened by the childhood ordeal , and one goes forward to enforce lawful agreements on intractable others.

cf. USA attorney general Bobby Kennedy, dangerous work attemtping to force the Mafiosi to obey the USA law

Anuradha Chandra strives to resolve tensions by creating alliances and instrumental friendships. Success in their life is based on a feeling of satisfaction earned through creating a network of legal [Shani] Agreements with violent [Mangala] or threatening parties.

Sincere interest in co-operative law-enforcement with colleagues and peers. Participates in elaborate networks of agreement that support large-scale schemes for human benefit.

One works steadily and consciously toward goals, with leadership ability; consistently willing to share the gains and losses - both .

Lawfully-oriented in life overall.

Sturdy alliances = the source of wealth .

Allied partners expand the scope of decision-making power .

Despite independent deal-making appearance, one never acts alone. One depends on the resistant [Shani] cooperation of others for one's success. A bit of arm-twisting is an essential tool in the working toolkit of this crafty deal-maker!

Anuradha-Chandra travels for purposes of meeting others, imposing hard-crafted agreements in stressful times .

The spouse must be a self-regulated person : sober and hard-working like Anuradha.

Compatible mates are born with Chandra in the Shani-ruled Nakshatra portions :

  • [Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya] soothed by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure * needs dignified orderly habits

  • [Chandra in Anuradha - Maitra] comforted by resistance to danger * protects against preventable damage * soothed by emergency regulations

  • [Chandra in Uttarabhadrapada-Andromeda] soothed by wisdom systems * compassionate protectors of hierarchical rules * needs to provide orderly guidance

Anuradha-Chandra's downside can be a flaring temper, evoked by jealousy that can escape one's control. Basic compassion and the inner mandate to achieve agreement not annihilation (annihilation = Radha) will normally bring Anuradha-Chandra back to their alliance-crafting senses.

Career ** Surya activates the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra-Vṛścika

For the Anuradha native, Ravi = a significant indicator of career recognition and professional success in carrying out public duties.

For the Anuradha native, Surya mahadasha tends to occur in the mid-fifties and early sixties. Check the individual Vimshottari dasha timeline to determine the exact start-stop times.

Therefore, the most significant era of career power is often very well timed with social expectations that a top manager, executive, or president should have some grey hair but Yet, also some residual youthful vitality in order to do the best job in social leadership roles.

Although Shankar began traveling for musical performances in his late childhood (Shukra activates 3-touring), his highest intensity touring began in his mid-fifties during t [Shukra Mahadasha] [age 41.3 until age 61.3, while traveling in musical cohort with his younger friend My Sweet Lord" 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison.

Prenatal maternal narrative of Shani and Born into Shani Mahadasha

born into period of vikrama-pati+bandesha-4 from Vṛścika Chandra. Predisposed to accept material and social leadership responsibilities. Predisposed to manage social organizations, including the sibling group. A responsible child; mother's helper.


Anuradha Chandra = Melinda French, life-partner-1 of Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates who works tirelessly on behalf of children in impoverished, war-torn settings.

The environments most damaging to healthy childhood are of course dominated by aggressive [Mangala] and generally rather primitive-minded males [Kuja].

Her task is to provide institutional structures [Shani] such as schools and medical delivery systems [Shani] that can support the weak ones against the strong ones (Shani vs. Kuja).

Naturally, this

is a delicate business involving constant repositioning and hammering out new agreements (Mithra) so that the immovable object (Shani = social order) is not destroyed by the irresistible force (Kuja = selfish war)

Also this business partnership = an auspicious marriage from Nakshatra point of view. Mrs. Gates = Shani-driven, always-structuring and regulating Chandra-Anuradha while Mr. Gates enjoys a highly compatible the Chandra-Uttarabhadrapada placement.


Mother has a need to sustain work duties which deliver validation via invasive control [Vṛścika].

  • She feels a need to labor on behalf of warriors, surgeons, emergency workers, and secret-keepers.

Anuradha is a difficult placement for the mother.

  • The sexual vitality in marriage (and other intimate relationships) competes for emotional resources with social duty roster; However, the sexual vitality remains fairly high.

  • The mother's parenting style is intensely controlling with a powerful emphasis upon rules and regulations. This mother is perceived as one who is training the youngster to understand the rules so that one will ultimately be empowered to break those ruled, manipulate them or undermine them.

Having received the emotional influence of Anuradha via the mother, Anuradha Chandra will be comfortable within relationships with persons who are secretive, invasive, and manipulative either in personality or due to their profession.

Special considerations :

Budha bhukti can be intensely mentalized for Anuradha children

Budha sees Chandra as an enemy graha.

Parents of children with Chandra in a final quarter of a Shani-ruled Nakshatra * pashya, Anuradha, or Uttarabhadrapada) should take note: you will be raising a highly mentalized, intellectually bright, critical, and argumentative child.

  • Observe the bhava and rashi of this child's Budha placement, and plan accordingly to support an inquisitive child who has already (in parallel lives ) mastered the fine art of the critique!

  • This child will find the holes in all of your arguments.

  • Budha bhukti are easier to manage and produce improved results after age 32 = the age of maturity for Budha

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Shani-ruled Anuradha - Maitreya behavior.

Behaviors of the partner in context of deepest emotional needs = characterized role of Shani in one's own nativity.

Bonds easily with others born in Anuradha amza

The Nakshatra of navamsha Soma reveals the psycho-emotional needs of the partner. Partners own dormant or less materialized (astral) emotional needs for security, protection, and a feeling of rootedness or familial belonging within the shelter of the core emotional relationships can be seen in this view.

One is attracted to the Anuradha pattern of needs and emotional cravings for defensive [Mangala] structures [Shani] created through the activity of forging alliances (Mitra).

Anuradha characteristics while somewhat anxiety-provoking do indeed feel familiar, Yet, also intriguingly different from one's more conscious Uttarabhadrapada style of self-defense and self-structuring through the Uttarabhadra activity of fortress-building.

Under emotional stress, Anuradha navamsha Chandra can evoke inner Shani-Mangala conflict, provoking anxious jealousy and alliance-enforcing behaviors.

In particular this native may need approval for their physical appearance or the value of their work, confirmation of their beauty or prestige.

Anuradha Chandra intuitively seeks out companions with the qualities of friendliness. These are alliance-makers and negotiators, often found in diplomatic, brokering, and legal environments.

The partner needs a steady pattern of interaction with friends and colleagues to stabilize their own emotional life.

Partner may be overly concerned with entertaining others, spending excessive resource on group dinners or other compulsive hosting role.

  • If the teachings of Professor Chandra-Anuradha are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) Usually, via constrictive drishti. The partner may exhibit out-of-control jealousy, or be possessed with desire for The financial well-being or spouse of others.

  • Normally this partner receives enough emotional validation through their balanced network of family, colleagues, and friends.
